An important figure in the development of Republicanism and the Irish Republican Brotherhood in the west of Ireland, Colm O'Gaora, was also a leading figure in the first generation of nationalist intellectuals who defined the emergence of the nascent Irish state. He details the IRA seizure of the barracks at Maam Cross in April 1920 amongst other events like his childhood in the Connemara Gaeltacht, his work as a travelling teacher for the Gaelic League, joining the Irish Volunteers, preperations for the 1916 Rising in Galway in Mayo and subsequent imprisonment in Dublin and Darthmoore.

On his release he returned to Republican activities working with Peadar O'Donnell and was imprisoned again in Galway. 'On the Run' is his memoir and provides a fascinating insight into a particularly turbulent era in Irish history.

Translated and edited by Ruan O’Donnell and Micheál Ó hAodha of The University of Limerick, from the classic Irish revolutionary text 'Mise', by Colm O'Gaora.
